Apocalyptic island of waste in the Maldives: Is this in store for Cayman?

The Cayman Islands needs to move urgently to stop this situation developing here. These islands must also embrace recycling. Cut down the volume of your waste stream and there is much less to go into a landfill. Food waste can be made into compost, metals can be sold, paper can be sold, glass can be added to the asphalt that is put on our roads, plastic bottles can be used for greenhouse construction in which we utilize the compost we made from food waste to grow much of our (organic) foodstuff. We do not have to reinvest the wheel, we just,need to use our imagination.
